As rosin gains momentum in the world of weed, we have many customers wondering about the benefits of this versatile concentrate, and what makes it such a great alternative to other extracts on the market.
Q: What is rosin?
A: Rosin is a cannabis extract made from a process combining heat and extremely high pressure.
Q: How is rosin made?
A: Using the high pressure and heat combination, a resin is produced by pressing either bud, kief, shake or hash. The process extracts the cannabinoids and releases trichomes from the original product, resulting in a high-potency sap-like substance.
Q: How potent is rosin?
A: Every batch will be different, and is hard to test, but some rosin has been known to retain over 90% potency from the original product.
Q: What are the benefits of rosin compared to other marijuana resins like shatter?
A: Rosin has a distinct advantage over other products as it is a solventless extract, meaning no butane, alcohol or propane have been used to make it. When you use rosin, you will be inhaling a chemical-free substance, and getting a much cleaner high.
Q: What can rosin be used for?
A: Besides smoking, rosin is a very adaptable product which can be made into edibles, shatter, budder, wax, tinctures, balms, and more.
Q: What should I look for when purchasing rosin?
A: Rosin should have a consistent, amber colour. Because it retains so much flavour and aroma, it should also have a very strong smell. There should be no plant matter present in the extract.
Q: How do people generally consume rosin?
A: Rosin is usually inhaled by dabbing, but as mentioned above, can be added to many other substances for other methods of consumption.
